Chiara has been familiar with the Maldivian waters since early 2000, when she joined a local resort group after having completed her postgraduate studies at the University of Milan in the field of Marine Biology.
Before joining Coco Collection in 2012, Chiara had carried out research on Mediterranean whales and dolphins. Since her time in the Maldives, she had initiated numerous projects focusing on the protection of vulnerable species such as whale sharks, manta rays and sea turtles, as well as the preservation of the delicate coral reefs and marine protected areas.
Among her many milestones, Coco Collection’s official partnership with Olive Ridely Project was her biggest accomplishment.
Chiara has always been curious and passionate about Marine Biology, especially on the varying aspects and concerns connected with conservation, environmental changes and the necessary education to increase awareness about environmental issues and related preventative measures.
